1 Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation (TTCF) President and CEO Position Description The Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation is seeking a seasoned leader to engage the community and build the leadership and philanthropic support required to create a vibrant and sustainable community in North Tahoe. Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation connects people and opportunities, generating resources to build a more caring, creative and effective community, and supporting the leadership needed to tackle challenges and create opportunities that will build a more nurturing environment for all. TTCF serves communities along the lake from the North Shore in the East to Emerald Bay in the West, and to North East Truckee, Donner Summit, Soda Springs and surrounding communities. TTCF has been building philanthropy in North Tahoe through its work with donors, nonprofits and communities for more than a decade. Established through the vision of William Hewlett and the commitment of community leaders, TTCF opened its doors in 1998 and has grown to serve thousands of people and awarding over $10,000,000 in grants and scholarships since inception. Individuals, families, businesses, and organizations create charitable funds that help meet the challenges of the region. TTCF offers a variety of financial and programmatic vehicles to connect donors to causes, from immediate basic human needs to field-of-interest funds. Gifts allow the Foundation to respond quickly to the needs of the growing community, providing leadership and direction through proactive grants to non-profit organizations throughout the Foundation s region. The Foundation s assets, approximately $20 million, are held in trust and managed by an external professional investment advisor. TTCF has over 75 funds with more than 3,000 donors contributing to the support of the hundreds of nonprofits at work in the region. More than 200 grants are awarded annually in the following areas: Arts and culture Education and youth development Environment, conservation, and animal welfare Health and human services Since 2008 the Foundation has focused its discretionary grantmaking on basic needs due to the challenges created in the area from the recession of 2007/2008. TTCF is governed by an active, committed 13-member volunteer Board of Directors, comprised of the region s civic and business leaders. Learn more about the Tahoe Truckee Community Foundation at: Position Overview The President & Chief Executive Officer (CEO), under the guidance of the Board of Directors, manages and leads all aspects of the Foundation while overseeing a professional staff providing donor development, planned giving and consultation services, public relations and marketing, grant-making and program support, financial management and oversight, human resource management and staff and board development, and project and community collaborative/leadership efforts. Beyond these

2 Page 2 of 5 responsibilities, the CEO is responsible for the public accountability and legal obligations of the Foundation. The CEO is the Foundation's chief asset developer and is charged with fully engaging the Board of Directors and staff to achieve the Foundation's asset building goals. The CEO will lead the Board of Directors in developing a multi-year strategic/business planning process supported by the development of a strategic communications plan. The CEO will be responsible for implementing, leading, and managing the plan. Guided by this roadmap for growth, the CEO will lead, expand and manage TTCF s: Donor and fundraising efforts; Community, program and project development; Multi-pronged collaborative efforts with other organizations; Day-to-day operational effectiveness. TTCF currently has an annual operating budget of nearly $600,000 which supports the work of the CEO, a fulltime Administrative Director, 6 part-time professional staff and many volunteers. The Region The North Tahoe area is magnificently beautiful and one of the most popular and desirable locations in the Western United States. Lake Tahoe is considered the jewel of the High Sierra, one of the deepest and bluest lakes in the world. At 6,229 feet above sea level, Lake Tahoe is the highest lake of its size in the United States. From the lake, there is a stunning 180 degree panoramic view of the Sierra Nevada Mountains which rise to over 10,000 feet in the region. Visitors traveling to the North Lake Tahoe region generate a substantial portion of the area s economic activity. The region provides a rich offering of world class winter sports and summer outdoor activities. Much of the local economy depends on visitors and owners of vacation homes (part-time residents) who contribute significantly to businesses that provide accommodations and entertainment in the region. Exquisite destination resorts and restaurants draw repeat visitors who often choose to retire or relocate within the communities around the Lake after developing a love of the area over many years. North Tahoe has approximately 68,000 permanent residents with a substantial number of 2 nd homeowners (depending upon the season) easily more than doubling this number. The region is complex in governance with two states, four counties and multiple city and municipal entities. The needs of the community are typical of those found in areas with a significant service economy. Current and Recent Foundation Initiatives The Community Collaborative of Tahoe Truckee, a regional collaborative comprised of 40 community based organizations who vision and work together to create a safe and healthy environment for children, youth, and families. Speak Your Peace was a campaign to improve communication by reminding ourselves of the basic principles of respect. In , TTCF conducted a large community campaign to

3 Page 3 of 5 encourage people to use the nine tools of civility when engaged in public debate. At that time, nearly every public body plus over 1,000 citizens signed up to practice civility using these tools. TTCF recently coordinated a Call to Action, a weekend fundraising initiative to support basic operating requirements of local nonprofits hit hard by the economic decline. TTCF, along with many community partners, convened a community forum to discuss suicide prevention. Over 75 people attended this gathering at which strategies and ideas were shared for keeping our youth safe, resilient and thriving. The Queen of Hearts Women s Fund, officially launched in February 2006, with the goal to identify 1,000 women to give a minimum of $1,000 and raise $1 million dollars within 1 year. This goal was exceeded and $1.3 million has been raised to date and membership continues to grow. The fund is an opportunity to learn and participate in philanthropic giving, while tapping the influence and power of the women of the community. TTCF has launched a New Funds Initiative to expand its grantmaking and internally capacity.
